Here are the three processors released:

These prices are substantially cheaper than the equivalent Intel silicon.

Crunching the numbers here, these prices mean that the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X will cost $700 less than the equivalent Intel Core i9-7960X chip, and a whopping thousand dollars less than 18-core/36-thread Core i9-7980XE.

At the more modest end of the spectrum (if you can call it that) the Ryzen Threadripper 1920X costs $400 less than Intel's Core i9-7920X, and $600 less than the Core i9-7940X.

All chips will be shipped unlocked for ease of overclocking, will use AMD's new Socket TR4, and will feature quad channel DDR4 and 64 lanes of PCI Express.
